Xola (ko-lah) Malik is a hip hop recording artist, producer, and actor from Tacoma, WA. He was a member of Grammy-winning group Sir Mix A Lot. Formerly known as Kid Sensation, his six critically-acclaimed CDs (including Power of Rhyme, From the Cradle and Back Home) sold over 1 million units. Xola experienced the glitz, glam, and fast life with the music business. Life experiences, soul searching, and the Holy Spirit led and inspired the writing of his newly released book on faith, The Vapor.
What is the purpose of our lives? Are our years here on earth the end, or the beginning? What do our words, actions, and lives say about what we truly believe? If our earthly lives are preparation for heaven, why do we treat this brief stage with such priority over the infinite years to come? Xola does not intend to provide every answer, but introduces ideas, provokes thought and discussion. The Vapor builds a case with facts, data, real life scenarios and experiences -- challenging us to examine our lives, beliefs, and priorities. Many of us spend a lifetime chasing a vapor that will soon vanish away.
"I am a Christian man who loves God and people. I enjoy my roles as father, recording artist, and author. The Vapor will serve as a catalyst to prompt non-believers to begin inner dialogue on their beliefs. It will also challenge many Christians to examine the way they view their lives, eternity, and who they truly are." – Xola
